  • BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The analysis of standing balance is now possible using commercially available force platforms. In order to establish appropriate testing and treatment protocols for patient populations, we contend data should be collected relative to the typical response of nonpatient groups. More importantly, we need to better understand response characteristics of persons with intact nervous systems. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the typical response of young adults without… CONTINUE READING
